Mixable Skincare Is The Future. Are You Ready For It?

08 June 2017 / by Alexandra Nodes

Your skin is extraordinary. It really is a work of art. It's your biggest organ, protecting you from the elements and changing constantly, adapting to weather and changing conditions in a way smart technology can only dream of.

Doesn't it make sense that the products you use to keep your skin healthy adapt too? Shouldn't skincare products be multiuse, mixable, and versatile? We think they should.

Our range of natural skin care products is based on a simple philosophy: imagine a simple set of products that would meet all of your facial skincare needs.

Bringing to the table a detailed knowledge of natural essential plant and herb extracts and oils built up over more than a decade of research and experimentation, we were able to break down facial skincare into five core skincare fundamentals: the routine.

Each component was then examined by purpose and active ingredients, leading to natural synergistic combinations. A further five augmented products, each with a specific ability to react to or repair skin as it naturally fluctuates in state, mixed at the point of use according to taste: the response, and the ritual.

That's what mixability is all about. Being able to tweak the texture and formula of products, to create your own bespoke products at home using active botanical ingredients blended for maximum impact. If you have great basics in your kitchen, cooking becomes a pleasure and an adventure. Why not have the same thing in the bathroom? We created our capsule collection to be all you'll ever need for healthy, great-looking skin. But don't be fooled.

Where you might see 5 elegant products, we see (at least) 10.


1. Balancing Face Oil + Exfoliating Powder = An extra Hydrating, Brightening Exfoliator

Mix a few drops of our natural balancing face oil with our exfoliating powder for an instantly polishing, toning, brightening boost for a glow on-the-go. The more oil, the more glow. Throw in as much or as little as you feel like.



2. Balancing Face Oil + Face Cream = Extra Rich Face Cream

This combination adds viscosity to the texture of our Face Cream, giving you longer, deeper hydration with an instant brightening effect, for nourished skin when you need it most. This is profound nourishment for skin damaged by sun or wind, regenerating and reconditioning skin cells.


3. Natural Cleanser + Balancing Face Oil = Hydrating Face Mask

Creating a softening, hydrating face mask easily at home gives you the chance to repair and restore skin's elasticity and texture. It's a profound skin cell regeneration and deep antioxidant mask ritual for intensive care.


4. Natural cleanser + Exfoliating Powder = Gentle Exfoliator

Our Exfoliating Powder is formulated to be gentle to skin, but some days skin can be extra sensitive. When skin is damaged, or dry, mixing our smooth natural cleanser with our Exfoliating powder gives you a smoothing and conditioning exfoliation treatment for those delicate skin days. It's also a great time saver, for after a work out or when travelling.


5. Multiuse Balm + Exfoliating Powder = Smoothing Lip Treatment

Once in a while, mixing Exfoliating Powder in with our creamy, lush balm produces a lip repair treatment that clears dead skin cells from lips and leaves them deliciously smooth and nourished. It's a repairing and polishing lip ritual, for lips that get used a lot.
